I am back to Buenos Aires, after 3 wonderful weeks spent in France, my mother’s country. The trip was amazing. I feel closer to my biological family, now.
The Tribute Exhibition and opening were incredible moments, that I have shared with my husband Leonardo, as well as many people who were friends or acquaintances of Gabriela, and whom I didn’t know.
I have been very moved by their testimonies and signs of friendship. I have been especially happy to meet two members of the ‘2048 Expedition’, with whom my sister lived her great adventure in Antarctica: Olivier Bertin and Adrien Moyaert. Thank you all, especially The City Hall of Paris’ 10th arrondissement and Agathe Simon for having organized this great event!
During the opening, a video has been directed by Agathe Simon. I wish to share it with you today.
Here is a 3mn excerpt of my 52mn documentary ‘Antarctica, Looking for Gabriela’. In February 2013, I went to Antarctica in order to shoot this film, following the traces of my sister Gabriela during the ‘2048 Expedition’.
The life on Carlini Base is amazing. A special mixture of army rules (fixed schedule) and wild adventure (being in the middle of nowhere). We went yesterday on Fourcade Glacier for a ride on the ice with snowmobiles.
I am not sure to write a lot on my blog while being here. As I have a lot to experience and accomplish.
My art project is doing well. I work on the air bubbles captured in the ice. I have filmed some Gentoo Penguins yesterday. I think the Internet connection is OK today, in order I can post a pic.
Tonight, we party with the scientists and soldiers of the base: Argentinian pizza and asado!
